Located at the Center’s flagship Anita May Rosenstein Campus, the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s 1,600-square-foot Liberation Coffee House is a café and community space operated and staffed by graduates of the organization’s intergenerational Culinary Arts program, a three-month training program launched in 2019 to prepare LGBTQ youth and seniors from the Center for employment in the restaurant and hospitality industries. Revenue from this unique social enterprise will be reinvested into the Center’s life-changing and life-saving programs and services.
“The heart and soul of this incredible social enterprise connects LGBTQ seniors and youth to work together in creating delicious food and drink for our entire community. We invite everyone to come and enjoy a taste of Liberation!” – CEO Lorri L. Jean
While the day‐to‐day use is a retail coffee shop, Liberation Coffee House’s agile space layout can be reconfigured quickly to accommodate gallery openings, meetings, lectures, celebrations, networking mixers, and other community events.
